  1. questionSamples for Testing & Prototyping
    Can I get free samples? If you are unfamiliar with magnets, we understand that working with these products in your design can be an interesting-- and difficult-- process. Unfortunately we are not able to provide free samples, except under certain circumstances. However, we ARE able to offer ...

  2. questionWhich rubber material thickness?
    The thickness of magnetic rubber material varies between products. We stock a variety of products in varying thicknesses to suit a multitude of applications. Click here to see our range of magnetic flexible rubber material products. Regardless of thickness, magnetic rubber cannot attract throug ...

  3. questionWhich Magnet is Right for Me?
    Choosing the right magnet is tricky. If you spend a few moments understanding how magnets work, you'll be much more likely to get the right magnet the first time! The most distinguishing feature of our magnets is the material they are made from. Rare Earth (also known as Neodymium), Ceramic Fer ...

  4. questionMagnet Pull Strengths
    Magnets are a difficult product to understand; the true measurement of a magnet is its "Gauss" reading... but who understands that!? For ease of use, the measurement "Pull Strength" is used instead by Aussie Magnets as a way of demonstrating the relative power between individual magnets. It is n ...

  5. questionUnits of Magnetism
    Measuring the strength of an invisible force is difficult. Throughout our website you'll see a number of different scales used to measure the strength of a magnet. Each of these measurements have their advantages and disadvantages, and can interpret the same magnet differently. So, which unit i ...

  6. questionPoles & Directions of Magnetism
    Our magnets can be magnetised across any axis, hence allowing them to be used to different effect. The 'Direction of Magnetism' determines on which side of the magnet the north and south poles appear. Here are our most common directions of magnetism: Axially Magnetised through thickness D ...

  7. questionTypes of Magnets
    There are three main types of iron-based, but artificially made, permanent magnets. They are manufactured from various combinations of raw material elements, which are combined through a powder metallurgical process to produce different magnet types that are shaped by various moulding, casting ...

  8. questionWhat are Magnet Grades?
    Rare Earth In rare earth neodymium magnets, the grade refers to the materials used in the production process. Material "grades" range from N27 to N52 (higher is stronger). Some grades may be followed with a letter designation, which denotes a special increased temperature feature of a product. ...
